Windows shuts down when card reader or camera is plugged into USB

I have a pretty new Toshiba laptop. When I plug my printer into any of the USB ports, everything works great. Lately, when I plug in a card reader or my digital camera Windows closes down. I have updated all drivers for card reader and camera. Any ideas?

Some software programs monitor for removable drives which are not used. When you plug in your camera or memory card or memory stick, It comes up as a removable drive. My wife's laptop with Vista Home Basic had a problem between her secure memory stick and InCD. BSOD would cause restart the computer when stick was plugged in. I temporarily disabled InCD and memory stick works. Funny, though, her machine had no trouble with her camera. Go figure.

I bought a toshiba, have not used my sony cybershot 1.3 till today, only to find I cannot download my pictures because my driver is not installed.


The easiest alternative method to transfer the pictures onto your computer is to remove the memory card and plug it into a card reader (either built in or a USB card reader if you have one). If not, you can connect your camera to your computer by the USB cable.

Once you plug the camera or the card in, Windows will usually ask you if you want to import the images. You can do that or import them manually by opening up the SD card or camera in my computer and dragging the files to the folder you want to store them in.

Otherwise please post your exact Sony Cybershot model and the version of Windows on your Toshiba and we can try to find you the correct software.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Can't download pictures from camera to laptop. Never had a problem before. It states USB is not recognised, bought a new USB lead & it still doesn't work. USB card reader doesnt work on my laptop....


Let's go all the way back to your card reader not working when you plug it in. Are you sure? Sometimes you have to open "my computer" to find it...it will be a removable drive.

"Cannot find source media for importing" message. I can't import my pics because it doesn't recognize the camera that is connected through the USB port.


HI PINNACLEDATA! FIRST I NEED TO KNOW THE OS YOU ARE USING ON YOUR COMPUTER.SOMETIMES IN XP YOU CAN USE THE DROP DOWN LIST OF CAMERAS TO FIND A CAMERA WITH THE SAME NAME AND USE IT TO DOWNLOAD. THEN THERE IS ALWAYS THE WAY TO JUST LOAD THE MEMORY CARD INTO YOUR COMPUTER IF YOU HAVE SLOTS. MY HP 9700 SERIES HAS THE SLOTS TO DOWNLOAD AND YOU DON'T NEED THE CAMERA. ALSO, HAVE YOU TRIED A USB CARD READER. JUST PLUG AND PLAY. AND SOME OF THE LATER PROGRAMS HAVE PRETTY GOOD SOFTWARE. I KNOW WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY MATCHES A LOT OF DIFFERENT CAMERAS. GOOGLES PICASA IS PRETTY GOOD ALSO. IT HAS A LIST OR FOLDER. MAN I KNOW I HAVE A NIKON COOLPIX 3500, A KODAK Z 712is, SLOTS ON MY LAPTOP A CARD READER AND A PRINTER THAT CAN READ MEMORY CARDS AND PRINT PHOTOS WITHOUT A COMPUTER OR CAMERA! YOU MIGHT GET HOLD OF YOUR CAMERA MAKER AND SEE IF THEY HAVE AN UPDATED FIRMWARE FOR YOUR OS. REMEMBER IF IT WON'T TAKE YOUR CAMERA, IT WILL USUALLY ALWAYS TAKE THE MEMORY CARD! A CARD READER IS REALLY CHEAP AND SHOULD PLUG RIGHT INTO YOUR PHOTO SOFTWARE PROGRAM. GOOD LUCK! IF YOU STILL HAVE PROBLEMS, REPLY TO
ARCLIGHT1217 AND DON'T FORGET YOUR OS! AND I'LL SEE WHAT ELSE I CAN FIND FOR YOU!

Place for a memory card from digital camera to


It does not appear that this laptop has a media slot for you to put your memory card into. So you can use the USB cable that came with the camera - but I find that it is always very slow, and uses up the camera's battery pretty quick.

So you may be better off getting a USB media reader. you'd remove the memory card from the camera, put it into the slot in the reader, and plug the reader into a USB port. In My Computer you'd see a new drive pop up, and you could click on the DCIM folder, and then the 100XXXXX (where XXXXX is the name brand of the camera, or some portion of it) folder, and you can then cut and paste your pictures to the computer. If you Cut instead of Copy, it deletes the pictures from the media, so that when you put it back in the camera, it is blank and ready to take more pics.

Driver for Canon EOS 400D


This camera does not require a driver on windows XP. The most common cause of USB related communication issues is the USB cord itself. Second most common cause is the USB port on the camera as they are easily damaged. You can fix the problem by buying a USB card reader instead of plugging the camera directly into your PC. If you use the camera's USB port it will eventually fail, they simply can not last through years of plugging and unplugging and the bumping around associated with use of the on board USB port. With the card reader you simply remove the memory card from the camera, plug it into the reader and then proceed to get your pictures. It is simple, reliable, and all around the best solution to this and all problems related to communicating with your camera over USB.
